Fiesta Quinoa Enchilada

So I’m switching it up a bit today and sharing a recipe I tried on my family this week. So, for the 4 dudes who read this, please feel free to space out now, because I know ya’ll don’t cook (I only know this because they’re related to me). I found this recipe on www.skinnytaste.com. I’ve tried several of her recipes before and have usually been pleased. Some of her stuff is a little out there for my picky ones but this dinner was a hit. And by hit, I mean, 2 out of 3 kids cleaned their plates. This is a magnificent feat in my house. If you don’t have picky eaters, feel very VERY blessed. To be a person that likes to cook and have children that don’t eat much is my cross to bear. Feel very sorry for me. I’m a modern day martyr.

So a couple of things, I let my kids eat this with tortilla chips. They liked the idea of “dip” for dinner so I went with it. That was an easy battle to lose. It’s a healthy meal so I didn’t feel too bad about the chips. Also, I noticed in the comments on the website that people were getting confused about the enchilada sauce. In her recipe she makes her own with tomato sauce, garlic, adobo sauce, and cumin. So when it says to spread the enchilada sauce, it’s talking about the tomato sauce you just made. Serve it up with some broccoli and you’ve got your meal. This served my family of five with leftovers for another day. We really enjoyed it and I thought you might too! Let me know if you like it and if you would like me to post more recipes I try on my family. I always love having new recipes to try so if you’re the same way let me know in the comments section. Thanks!
